About the speaker
I am 29 years old, born and raised in Wales. I recently quit my job working in IT , (specifically Web Analytics Manager at GoCompare) I studied software development in University and then continued to pursue a career within data and websites which I loved and also loved managing people and projects. I had always dreamed of travelling the world but never quite got around to it, I would always go for 2-3 week trips to asia and other countries, As would I always go to cities in Europe on weekends but last May I decided to quit my job, put my property on the market for rent and left to travel, i first wondered was I mad or crazy to leave everything and everyone I knew behind to travel alone…. Almost one year later I am still on the road, I have worked and lived in New Zealand , volunteered from building mud houses, to working with children and just enjoying my life! I return home after a year this May with many life changing experiences from travelling , the earthquake in particular – I have decided to now explore new opportunities, instead of climbing the career ladder I am now looking for new ways to serve people and share my passion for living life and striving to be as happy as possible.
